Barney Frank: Antonin Scalia is a ‘Homophobe’
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said in an interview Friday on 365gay.com that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is a ''homophobe.'' ''(snip)[the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court,'' Frank said.
''I wouldn’t want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court.''
Frank also said in the interview that he thinks President Barack Obama will reverse the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military.
“Absolutely,” Frank said, concerning the policy.
Frank also predicted that Obama and a Democratic majority in Congress will pass three pro-homosexual laws in the coming months and years, including the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) that bans workplace discrimination because of sexual orientation; a hate crimes law for individuals who have had sex-change surgery; and a law to allow homosexuals to serve “openly” in the military.
The most detestable person in Congress (Queen Pelosi makes it close but Fwank has been there longer) seems to believe that because Scalia doesn't like him, Scalia is a ''homophobe.'' That would be about 90% of the US population outside of Mass. then too.
